Get more value with watch consignment

WatchMaestro is the only pre-owned luxury watch dealer in the UAE that lets you consign your watch. But what is consignment? Watch consignment online is basically getting your watch listed on our website at an agreed price. After a thorough inspection and evaluation of the watch, our team will discuss the pricing with you and only list the watch at the price you agree to.

While the watch is listed, it is still yours until we find a suitable buyer for it. This will allow you to showcase your watch to our huge user base and sell it for the price that you have always wanted.

To initiate the consignment process, you just need to speak to one of our associates and they will help you get your watch listed on our website. Once your watch is sold for the listed price, the amount will be transferred to you immediately via your preferred payment method. For the consignment, you will be charged an admin fee of AED 1,000. Also, depending on the selling price of the watch, we will take a nominal commission only after the watch is sold.

How does the watch consignment process work?

Watch consignment lets you sell your watch for the maximum price possible. For this, we list your watch on our website in exchange for a small commission. As soon as we receive the payment from the buyer, we will transfer the agreed amount to you via your preferred payment method.

Alongside that, you should also provide your contact information so that one of our agents can get in touch with you to discuss the next step.

Before we can list your watch on our website, we need to ensure that it is in a good condition and all its parts are authentic. For that, you can either bring your watch to us or send it to us through courier. Our experts will then inspect the watch from inside and out to determine its true market value. Based on that, we can agree upon a price for the watch’s listing.

Step 3 – List your watch on our website

Once we have agreed upon the price and the commission rate, we will list the watch on our website. We will also post the watch description and images on our social media channels and our WhatsApp groups. This will help us sell your watch at the desired price in a short period of time.

Step 4 – Receive payment

Once we have found a buyer who is willing to pay the asked amount, we will take the money from them and give the watch in exchange. You can choose to get paid in cash or we can even transfer the money to your bank account.

When should you use consignment over regular selling?

When you are looking to sell your premium watch, you have two major options. Either you sell the watch directly and get instantly paid. Or you can choose to consign your watch. But what is the difference between the two selling methods? Here’s a deeper dive into how the two selling methods differ when you are looking to sell your Rolex or Patek Phillipe watch.

  • Sell it directly
  • Luxury watch consignment store

Sell it directly

The fastest way to sell your watch would be to come and sell it directly at WatchMaestro. Under this method, you will get paid immediately after the inspection and evaluation of the watch. This would be a great way to sell your watch if you are in a hurry. You will not only save time but also end up getting a good deal for your precious timepiece.

This is a method that you can use when you are short on time or want to sell your watch to buy another one as quickly as possible.

Luxury watch consignment store

Time is money. It is a popular aphorism often used by the rich and elites alike. Watch consignment is exactly like time is generating money for you. As a part of the Rolex consignment or any watch consignment, we will list your luxury watch on our website. This way, you will not only be able to showcase your watch to our large user base but also you can be stress-free about the selling. Once the watch gets picked up by someone, we’ll take care of the whole shipping and payment process.

An example of a watch consignment at WatchMaestro

Here’s a quick example of how Peter sold his Rolex GMT Master-II Batman for a great price by consigning it to us:

One day, Peter decided that he wants to sell his Rolex GMT Master-II Batman. He visits WatchMaestro with his watch. Upon a thorough inspection and evaluation, WatchMaestro quoted a price of AED 90,000. But Peter did not seem to agree with the price as he was looking to get somewhere close to 120,000.

As a result, WatchMaestro suggests he uses the watch consignment service. Peter showed his interest as he was in no hurry. A quick market research conducted by the WM team determined that the watch is worth AED 110,000. Peter agreed to the price and the watch was listed on the WatchMaestro website for AED 110,000.

After 3 weeks, there was a buyer ready to buy the watch at the listed price. After taking the consignment fee, WatchMaestro sent the remaining amount to Peter in his bank account instantly. At the end of the day, Peter was really delighted to get a great deal without any hassle.
